1098-T Tax Form updates

February 9, 2010

We have heard reports that our third party servicer for 1098-T tax forms, ECSI, has been experiencing a high volume of calls and students are unable to obtain their PIN numbers to view their 1098-T forms online.

PIN numbers available on RAMweb

You may now get your PIN on RAMweb by logging in, going to "Billing Information" and then selecting "Online access to 1098-T."  You will need that PIN number, the CSU school code, JW, and your CSUID to view your 1098-T form online at

If there is no PIN number listed on RAMweb for you, you will have to call ECSI @ 1-866-428-1098 to get one.

Change in process

Also, many people have questions regarding what appears to be missing tuition amounts for tax year 2009.  In past years you would have seen tuition charges for Spring 2009 on this year's tax form. 

Due to a change in process, tuition charges for Spring 2009 that were billed in December 2008, were shown on your 2008 1098-T form.  If you aren't sure whether you used the Spring 2009 data on last year's 1098-T form, you should print both the 2008 and 2009 forms and take them to your tax advisor.

For questions regarding your 1098-T, please contact ECSI online or @ 1-866-428-1098.
